Hadhramout tribesmen will take control of their land, if the killers of Saleh Ali Jabir and his bodyguards are not handed, the gathering said in a statement.
Late last May, Shibam security commander and three bodyguards were killed in an explosive device blast.
On 27 April, three other bodyguards of the same commander were shot dead by unidentified gunmen.
By phone call on 28 May, President Hadi assured Sheikh Abdullah Bin Ali Jabir that "subversive and terrorism elements must be annihilated, along with supporters," according to the Riyadh-based Saba.
