I found his Key but I don't know how to proceed:

I noticed also all letter clumps have 13 letters.

I think there's a letter missing at the end because the message reads:

listen to me kid you need to turn back now and leave town do not trust the treacherous sadiq or you will find yourself floating down a river face down with a knife in your back when you are no longer useful to hi

And you can unravel it by:

1. Arrange the 13-letter blocks into a 13 x 13 grid, one above the other:

  a   u   n   b   i   t   i   d   p   f   r   r   h
o p s r d p e r e p o m r
d i v y y i o a m e m u t
y m l p y d a g s m u p i
r r m e j d a g t e p i d
m r p m r s g a o o i s r
y f e f y f o p b y t t g
p y s p t o m s r j n r i
z p m m r w f y t s s m a
r y f p s p u o g l v p y
l i a y v t p m s m l a p
o t r y j u i h v o e p j
f m s t r p t f r g j m o

2. Use the key to replace all the letters in the grid (note: take the letter from the grid and look up the capital letter from the key and replace it with the corresponding lower-case letter)
  l   y   b   v   u   r   u   s   o   d   e   e   g
i o a e s o w e w o i n e
s u c t t u i l n w n y r
t n k o t s l f a n y o u
e e n w h s l f r w o u s
n e o n e a f l i i u a e
t d w d t d i o v t r r f
o t a o r i n a e h b e u
m o n n e q d t r a a n l
e t d o a o y i f k c o t
k u l t c r o n a n k l o
i r e t h y u g c i w o h
d n a r e o r d e f h n i

3. read down the columns of your grid.
