Hama Amadou fled to Burkina Faso last week as officials in his home country ruled his parliamentary immunity would not save him from being questioned over the scandal, which has rattled Nigerís political class.
The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to disclose Amadouís itinerary, said Amadou d was staying in Paris.
Amadouís wife and 17 other people including the countryís agriculture minister have already been arrested over their suspected links to trafficking babies from neighboring Nigeria.
Amadou and his supporters say he is being targeted because he is a rival to Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou.
