Please explain why I need to use”s” here? In the instrumental (VII) case modules, it was assumed in most of the answers.

Here it is literally doing something with someone together, not using him/her as an instrument. (Notice the case is named instrumental!)

The with was assumed in "to do something with something" / "dělat něco něčím" but that is a completely different meaning of with. It is an instrument, not a companion. If it is a companion you have "to do something with someone" / "dělat něco s někým"
