First of all - welcome to ATS, and thankyou for your information!
I'm not really sure, if anybody has already shed a light on that little, but in my opinion very explosive detail, but...
In your OP, you wrote
My friend who works in government sector visited me on 30-Apr as others do, but on 1-May, he suddenly received a message and told me he should
leave immediately for urgent order.
Then, later, you posted the following:

Finally I contacted my friend. Some of you are correct, that is related to the possible terrorists revenge as the Osama is died. He said staying in
China / Hong Kong is comparatively safe as the threat is low here. But the government already raised the level of concern as the revenge may be
So, the phone call your friend got on May 1st had got something to do with Osamas death, right?
I think that's quite remarkable. Because, according to wikipedia,
On May 1, 2011, in Washington, D.C. (May 2, Pakistan Standard Time), U.S. President Barack Obama announced that Osama bin Laden had been killed
and his body recovered in a U.S. military operation.
As far as I can remember, it was late in the evening (US-Time) of May 1st, when the first news of Osama's death started to spread.
Keeping in mind, that Hong Kong is ca. 13 hours ahead compared to New York City, it should have already been May 2nd in Hong Kong, when the news went
round the globe.
Keeping in mind, that the SEALs' mission to get Osama Bin Laden was a super secret mission, your friend...
... shouldn't have heard about Osamas dead before May 2nd, unless..
And now you probably get an idea, why I think your post is explosive.
When your friend told you on May 1st (Hong Kong time) (right after lunch?), that he's got to leave, and when he later told you, that his sudden
departure had got something to do with the Killing of Osama bin Laden, then...
... your friend knew about Osamas death long before the american public did.
I think it was in the early hours of May 1st (US-time), when Osama got killed. When your friend got his call after lunch, then possibly ... the
chinese government already knew about his death, when Osama Bin Laden hit the floor.
And what that means, is up to your imagination...
