Activists on social media circulated the last publication he published hours before his killing, the press secretary of the governor of Aden, Ahmed Lamlas, the journalist Ahmed Bu Saleh.
Activists said that Abu Salih published verses predicting his death. The publication published by Abu Salih stated:
The days, the situation, and the people betrayed me
And everything in my world has become a traitor
I walk with my steps
My path is bumpy, thorny, and all ambushes
A world without value, meaning and scale
Loyal ones live as hostages
Liar who told people to people
For the benefit, they became our customers
This time he piled up his trash like a tramp
All deception, charge and grudges
Loyalty is as rare as diamonds
People act as debtors and creditors
The journalist Abu Saleh was killed in the bombing that targeted the convoy of the governor of Aden this morning.
